Open Monday to Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Last entry is at 2:45 p.m.


Come along on a dramatic adventure to Antarctica—one of the most isolated and dangerous environments on Earth—and witness the latest discovery: dinosaurs. Antarctic Dinosaurs will immerse visitors in the thrilling hunt for never-before-seen fossils and shed new light on our planet’s ever-changing climate.

Follow scientists as they brave extreme conditions to excavate and bring home remarkable fossils that deepen our understanding of life on Earth. Though Antarctica today can be a forbidding land of snow and ice, 200 million years ago it was part of the supercontinent Gondwana, a wooded, lush habitat where dinosaurs thrived.

Guests can immerse themselves in this lost world and come face-to-face with the scientists’ discoveries like the twenty-five-foot-long predator Cryolophosaurus, touch real fossils from Antarctica, and get a sense of what goes into living and working in the coldest spot on earth.

Antarctic Dinosaurs was developed by the Field Museum, Chicago in partnership with the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, Discovery Place – Charlotte, NC, and the Natural History Museum of Utah. Generous support was provided by the Kenneth C. Griffin Charitable Fund
